The files contain the information of the outline of the
shapes for each optimised geometry.
All geometry dimensions are normalised using the
upstream width of the design, W_{u}.
The geometries investigated are characterised by a
contraction ratio CR=8, a normalised contraction
length, l_{c}/W_{u}=2.0, and are examined for
Pressure-Driven and Electro-Osmotic flows.
Moreover, this configuration was examined for both
2D and 3D flows. The dimensionless total length
of the given shapes is L/W_{u}=21.0
For the 3D flows
the aspect ratio AR is defined as w_{u}/depth.
The information is given in two different formats:
> Geometries.xlsx : Excel file that contains the shapes of all the optimised geometries.
Pressure-Driven flows
:
> 2D_PD.dat: Optimised geometry for 2D
> AR1.dat: Optimised geometry for AR=1
> AR2.dat: Optimised geometry for AR=2
> AR4.dat: Optimised geometry for AR=4
> AR8.dat: Optimised geometry for AR=8
Electro-Osmotic flows:
> EOF.dat: Optimised geometry for 2D
The optimised shape for EOF was also examined
for 3D flows and it was found that is applicable
for a range of aspect ratios, 1< AR <8.
